Intro to Woodworking II: Build a Wooden Box

Saturday, August 26 and Sunday, August 27, 9:00am-5:00pm $ 375.00

Please enter a quantity.


Intro to Woodworking II builds on the skills that students learned in Intro to Woodworking. Throughout the process of making a wooden box, participants will hone their milling techniques while developing new skills in layout, cutting to size, and basic box joinery. We will discuss lumber selection and grain graphics, and students will choose to work with walnut, maple, or cherry. Each participant will begin with a rough board and learn how to rough cut the lumber before completing milling and joinery. Finally, we'll explore surface preparation and options for finishing. 

All tools and materials are included. Class is limited to ten students.


This workshop requires some experience and comfort using the jointer, planer, table saw, and bandsaw. If you need to learn these skills or could use a refresher, you should first take Intro to Woodworking.
